Favorite Bible Verse of the Day

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying...For whatsoever man [he be] that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous, Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded, Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken...he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God."--Leviticus 21:21 KJV

I think that speaks for itself.

Is Internet anonymity ever a good thing?

While researching some art subjects, I came across this totally fascinating presentation comparing the custom of routinely wearing masks in ancient Venice to Internet anonymity.

Personally, I've always felt there are benefits to Internet anonymity that outweigh the cons. If there is truly bad behavior, the user and should be tracked down and sanctioned. This is the first time I've ever seen any scholarly writing on the subject.
